Reply To: Self Employed Carer for Mother


Can we consider him as being self employed even if he is looking after his mother?



He works for his mum, there is no need for a written contract, a contract can be verbal. Fact he receives WTC is a red herring and neither here nor there in this particular instance (HMRC may not even know what he is doing now), the arrangement between the 2 of them is what dictates how this flows.
